Sorry if what I'm about to say sounds like a cold shower to you,
but... QEMU as available in the ports collection has patches to work
around this, and even includes some interesting hacks (namely the DMA
patch) to make QEMU more responsive.

Same goes to KQEMU, which is in the ports collection as well.

Still, thanks for bringing this up again. I really think the QEMU
build system should support BSDs out of the box and these patches have
been available for quite some time; I fail to realise why Fabrice
hasn't integrated them yet.
